About the adventure

Your coming has been foretold by a man who can read the stars, but can your humble party prevent the forces of an unknown darkness from spreading across the face of the land? This two-part adventure by Winghorn Press pits your party against the far-flung creatures from Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes. It’s a desperate up-hill battle for survival and the fate of the realm, but you won’t have to fight alone. There are friends and allies to be made along the way. NOTE: Please sign up for BOTH sessions listed for this game! This is more like a very long one-shot than a campaign. If there are scheduling conflicts for one of the sessions, feel free to reach out to me.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a computer, headphones, and a microphone (fine if it’s an integrated mic in your computer or headphones). You will need to create a character (I can help with this if needed) and find character art - something pulled off image search is fine. We will be using Roll20 as a virtual tabletop, and you can use it for rolling dice. If you prefer the click-clack of the shiny math rocks, you are absolutely welcome to roll at home.

What I provide

I'll be providing the Discord server and Roll20 game for this session.

Gameplay details

This game is mostly about investigation and combat strategy.

How will character creation work

Please make your characters (and pick out character art) beforehand! If you need assistance with this, you can always reach out to me. You are welcome to use Roll20's built in character sheets, (useful for first-time folks as their character creation wizard is great), or good 'ole pen and paper. If you use dndbeyond, I recommend installing the beyond20 browser extension so you can roll in Roll20 directly from your character sheet. We'll be doing some finalizing at the beginning of the session (setting up your tokens, getting you some extra spending money and magic items, etc).
